FESTIVAL

MajorDocs is the first international documentary film festival in Mallorca; a space to discover other realities and other perspectives through carefully selected creative documentaries.

In a time defined by the sheer excess of content, MajorDocs proposes a slow experience: a journey through eight films, each with a deep author’s gaze, that encourage us to stop, step away from our daily lives and connect with not just the other, but also with our own sensibility.

Four days to reflect, ask and discuss each film with its author in an intimate and close setting, without lecterns or pedestals. Each screening will be a unique event without counterprogramming since it is our goal to take care of each film and each author.

During the festival, renowned filmmakers and new talents will share their experiences with the public. An event that will stimulate the critical eye through screenings and talks, as well as workshops and discussions on documentary cinema.

An unmissable date for anyone who enjoys looking without limits, discovering the unknown and stirring their heart.

MANIFESTO

MajorDocs goes out and looks for a creative documentary…

  1. Hybrid, innovative, transgressive, adventurous.

  2. Able to transcend the present and keep questioning ourselves in the future.

  3. Useless – in which art prevails over functionality.

  4. That digs deeply into the ins and outs of a complex world without staying on the surface.

  5. That leaves a mark on the audience and is able to short-circuit the passive spectator.

  6. In which the author’s gaze prevails over the facts.

  7. Able to transcend, if the film demands for it, the limits of the classic narrative.
